One of the important features to me is that you can pin Sticky Notes to your Desktop so that they are “always on top” – for me that means I don’t have to close windows to find the note I am looking for.
When you have a sticky note always on top, you can easily copy/paste contents from the current app to a sticky note. You can refer to important information inside the sticky note while you are working with the program.
She even appreciates Notezilla’s ability to stick specific notes to websites. So when you visit that website, the sticky note pops up automatically. This is highly productive and convenient. You can attach sticky notes to documents and folders too.
And truthfully, if the note is not right there staring me in the face, I’m likely to forget about it! I can add a Sticky Note to a website that I visit – and when I return to the site, the note will still be there. AMAZING!
And there is soooo much more! Even so, it’s very simple to use!
Some people have good working memory & they can remember a lot of things easily when needed, but not all (in fact, most don’t :))! Jog someone’s memory and grab the attention of the user by sending sticky notes as popup messages right on their desktop as they are highly visible & can’t be easily neglected.
The best part is that the current activity of the user remains visible and interactive while the pop-up message is displayed. They can do better job than email communications as the popup messages (sticky notes) appear instantly on the recipient’s computer using Notezilla .
What is Notezilla?
Notezilla is a professional, elegant & highly rated sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone etc). It can help you organize your life by keeping all the notes, tasks & reminders that you may need when-ever and where-ever you are. Check out Notezilla’s homepage.
Send sticky notes to other computers
Notezilla allows sending a sticky note as an instant popup message which will directly popup on the recipient’s Windows desktop, if she is a Notezilla user too. For better time management one can assign reminders, tags etc to sticky notes and ensure faster action from your co-workers. Groups are supported, i.e, you can send a popup message to a group of computers at once. Yes, that can be wonderful and very useful :)
Watch this short video describing this feature:
To maintain privacy & security, sticky notes are sent internally over local network using the recipient’s computer name or IP address. To ensure that the popup appears directly on desktop, Right click on Notezilla icon, choose Preferences, go to Advanced tab and enable ‘Stick incoming notes directly to desktop. You can also keep the popup on top of all the windows by enabling ‘Stay on top’ option if required.

Allow Notezilla through Windows Firewall
Make sure to first configure your PC firewall to allow running of Notezilla. The firewall on the PC might sometimes not allow to send or receive notes.
You can search for firewall in Windows search box and you will see “Allow an app through Windows Firewall”. Choose this option and enable Notezilla. If Notezilla is not listed, then click on ‘Allow another app’ and add Notezilla.
If you are using any other Firewall tool (usually included with Anti-Virus software) then you will have to configure that firewall.
Make sure you do this on both sending and receiving computer.
Now, you may wonder, what if the other computer is not powered on? Or if the other computer is not on the same network or if the user is at another location (city, country). Notezilla has a solution for this too.
Notezilla has a “Send to Contact” feature that allows you to send notes to anyone using his email address (not computer name). So if the other user is a Notezilla user already, then she will receive the sticky note right on her desktop. If she is not a Notezilla user, she will receive the note as an email.
Here is the post explaining the same – click here.
Manage your work and personal tasks separately and make sure that nothing falls through the cracks. Ensure that only related sticky notes draws your attention when needed the most by showing sticky notes only from a particular memoboard on your Windows desktop.
This post will show you how to show all the stickies from a particular memoboard on your desktop usingNotezilla and hide the rest.
For ex: Work sticky notes on desktop when you are at work and only personal sticky notes on desktop when you are at home.

1. When ever you want to access only your work notes, Go to the Work memoboard in Notes Browser, on the right, in the top list, press Ctrl+A so that all sticky notes are selected, right click on the list and choose ‘Stick to Desktop’.
2. Whenever you wish to access your Personal notes, go to Personal memoboard in the Notes Browser, on the right, in the top list, press Ctrl+A so that all notes get selected, right click on the list and choose ‘Stick to Desktop’.
3. Please note Before this (#2) step, you may need to go to the previously visible memoboard notes, select all notes and choose ‘Remove from desktop’ from the toolbar on top. Use the Notes Browser’s ‘Stick To Desktop’ button on the top toolbar. It will show Remove from desktop option.
Often, copying files (especially backing up files) can take several minutes to several hours. Imagine, it is time to go home and you want to shut down your computer. But you discover that the file backup task is still running. Such situations are not uncommon. Leaving your computer run for the whole night is waste of power. How about automatically shutting down your PC or hibernating it, once your files have been copied successfully?
Yes, Copywhiz can shutdown your computer automatically after the files are copied. It provides multiple shutdown options such as Log off, Restart, Sleep, Hibernate and Shut down.
Watch a short video depicting this feature:
Here is the screenshot of the window that lets you to configure various shutdown options in Copywhiz:
Do nothing: Completes the file copying process and does nothing.
Log off: Shuts down your user account only. The desktop itself will remain powered on and will revert back to the login screen for the next time you or someone else logs in.
Restart: The computer saves your information to the hard drive, turns off the computer for a moment, then turns it back on again.
Sleep: This uses very little power, your PC starts up faster, and you’re instantly back to where you left off once all the files are copied.
Hibernate: Saves all your open documents and applications both in memory and on your hard disk, and then puts your computer into a low-power state, allowing you to quickly wake the computer and resume your work.
Shut down: Closes all running programs and completely shuts off your machine, once the file-copying process is finished.
Please note that these options can be configured only when the file copy process is in progress. While the files are being copied, click on ‘Pause’ (optional) and then go to Options–>On Completion from the menu. Set any “On Completion” action that needs to be performed after file copy. Click on ‘Resume’ (if you have paused earlier) to continue copying files.
